Growing up, we never had salmon at our house. So, I never knew the fish existed until I attended a family reunion when I was a teenager. I had an Uncle who brought salmon he caught in Alaska. I have tried salmon prepared a variety of ways, but it was not until four years ago when a friend brought some over that I fell in love. It was like eating dessert. The flavors were so rich and decadent. You do not need to do much to cook perfect salmon. Just a few ingredients to enhance the flavor and do not over cook it.
4 Salmon fillets
4 tbsp butter, melted
Dill weed, 1 tsp dried or 1 tbsp fresh
1/2 tsp garlic powder
Salt & Pepper
1-2 Lemons, sliced
This can be cooked on stove top or baked in the oven. Preheat oven to 350. Line a baking dish with tin foil, making sure to have enough foil to fold over to seal. Cover the bottom of the dish with the lemon slices. Pour the melted butter over lemons. Season salmon with dill, garlic, salt and pepper. Place salmon fillets on top of the lemon slices. Seal the foil shut. Cook for 15-25 minutes or until opaque.
